    Welcome to BYC. Glad you decided to our flock. X2 on our Learning Center at https://www.backyardchickens.com/atype/1/Learning_Center. There is lots of useful information there. Please feel free to ask any questions you may have. We are here to help in any way we can. Do you have a breed preference?

    No breed preference yet. I need to build a coop. Looking at building it in my pile barn with an attached run outside.

    Welcome to BYC! [​IMG]I'm glad you joined us.

    I would definitely check out the Learning Center. To learn more about building coops, you may also want to take a look at the Coops section: Coop Designs

    Good luck with your future chickens!

    Welcome to BYC!

    You're at the beginning of a great adventure! Be sure to take pictures as you build your coop so you can create a coop page. The coop design pages are extremely helpful and it's neat to see the start-to-finish process. Very helpful too!

    Yes I really love the geeky sheep's coop and run. I would love to build one.

    Do you have the like to that coop page? I'd like to see it & can't find it.
